The Quinndom is crashing

This is big news and should interest anyone who has wondered why SC can’t get its political act together in Columbia. The time is ripe for 2018 to be the year of the challenger – if we can turn over a few seats and get the Quinndom out of the way, perhaps this state can begin to rise.

Reported by Post and Courier.com:
The State Grand Jury has handed down criminal conspiracy indictments against embattled political consultant Richard Quinn, his son, a suspended senator and two ex-lawmakers with ties to his firm in the ongoing Statehouse corruption probe.

reported by WLTX19:

South Carolina is getting another extension for the new REAL ID licenses that will soon be required nationwide.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has given the state until October 10, 2018 to get into compliance with the new standard that will affect drivers licenses and ID cards.

This is expected to be the final extension that the state will get, the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles says.

Senate removes barrier to confirming Trump’s justices

This is great news.  ACLJ.org reports:

Senator Mitch McConnell (KY), the Senate Majority leader, has heard our demand for action and reform. He has just removed an archaic procedural rule that has been misused by the left to block conservative federal judicial nominees from ever getting a vote—or even a hearing. It is called the Senate “blue slip,” but you will not find it in the Constitution.

In 1917, the blue slip was initially created as an informal Senate “courtesy.” Under this courtesy, home state Senators were asked about their opinion on the nominee from their state and the Senate Judiciary Committee took their […]

Krystal Blume – Door to door in District 28

Due to Eric Beddingfield’s resignation, there will be a special election for Greenville’s District 28 House seat on November 4th. I have heard all four of the candidates speak, and have spoken with folks in this district who know a little more about them, and I have decided to help Krystal Blume.

Each Saturday between now and November 4 she has teams of volunteers going door to door.  I’m going this Saturday to help, perhaps other Saturdays as well, and would like to encourage you – if you haven’t been out campaigning for a while, and need to refresh your skills […]
